I Can'T Take It Back - Poem by Elizabeth Muller

I wish I hadn’t gone and screwed it up for both of us
I should have kept my mouth shut, maybe then there’d be no fuss

I want to do it right for once, and start off being friends
Although for some strange reason, it all abruptly ends

My feelings they were stronger than I hoped for, ‘cuz I cried
I shouldn’t feel the way I did, and worse, they did not hide

I wore my heart right on my sleeve, for that I surely paid
I couldn’t stand to see your face, it hurt, and pain, it made

To see you smiling, happy, cheerful, cute as you can be
The wonder of what it would be like if you were with me

I couldn’t be your friend, not now, not until the feelings die
And now I’m ready, but you’re not. I don’t understand why

Did I turn you off completely from not being friends at all?
Did I hurt you when I told you? Is that why you’re standing tall?

I wished I hadn’t said a thing about me liking you
Then maybe it’d be different and we’d be friends, so true

I can’t change what my mom did, or what I said before
All I can do right now is wait until we’re friends once more
